On the other hand, accelerometers capture daily PA but do not take into account in which context this PA happened, such as sports participation. The Likert scale used to categorize both weekly volume and previous time of engagement is a

The use of objective measurement methods and sport-specific field tests can aid classifiers in their decision making. Results of the present study show the significance of

Wrist-worn accelerometry has become a feasible option for the objective measurement of physical activity in large-scale epidemiological studies, such as Pelotas birth cohorts, the UK Biobank, and Whitehall II ( da Silva et al., 2014 ; Doherty et al., 2017 ; Menai et al., 2017 ). Additionally

The subjective ratings and the objective measurements of COP velocity suggest postural instability when walking is sensitive to the peak magnitude of 1-Hz mediolateral oscillations but not the peak magnitude of 2-Hz mediolateral oscillations. Arranging the placement and timing of stepping reactions

Future studies may consider further investigating variables that impact student enjoyment toward PA and PE, and using objective measurements of PA and SB. Overall, the study
